Academic Advising

Students in the College of Engineering, Design and Computing meet with an academic advisor every semester. Students admitted into an engineering major or into pre-engineering with a bioengineering interest meet with an advisor in their engineering major/interest department. Students admitted to the pre-engineering program with an interest in one of the other four majors (computer science, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering) meet with our pre-engineering advisor. 

For questions or to schedule advising appointments, please contact our academic advisors by email or phone:

Check your student portal if you are unsure of the program you have been admitted to.  

Transfer Student Advising

Transfer students should bring to their advising appointment a copy of transcripts from all institutions attended, copies of course descriptions for any courses to be considered for transfer and, if possible, a syllabus for each of those courses. Only courses with a grade of C- or better will be considered for transfer credit. Pass/fail courses, internship courses, research-related courses and special topics courses will not be considered for transfer credit. 

Graduate Student Advising

Graduate students should contact their respective departments (see above) to schedule a meeting with their departmental faculty advisor as soon possible after admission. Graduate faculty advisors will assist you in understanding course requirements and can also assist in understanding the research requirements within a chosen department. If you wish to receive transfer credit for course work taken at another institution, you must meet with an advisor as soon as possible for consideration. (When meeting with a faculty advisor for consideration of the transferability of course work, students should have a copy of their transcripts and the course descriptions of any courses they wish to have evaluated.)

Graduate students are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor once every semester to ensure satisfactory progress toward degree completion.
